Best Nursing Home in Olmsted Falls, Ohio Awards 2021
Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this place excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency data for this facility, it was challenging to assess the place in the area of inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. Our short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
